Groups Welcome!

Guided Tours of the House 

 A group visiting Kiplin HallTour the house with one of our expert guides. Learn about the founding of Maryland, the history of the four families, related by blood or marriage, who owned Kiplin Hall, and some Royal connections.

The house is furnished as a Victorian home with an eclectic mix of furniture, paintings and personal possessions that belonged to the families who lived here. The rooms are not roped off and many people comment on the homely feel of the house.

 “Our group thought the whole day was a wonderful experience. Your guides, Malcolm and Susie, were so informative and made the tour of the Hall so interesting learning about Kiplin hall and its family history.”

Take a Turn around the Gardens…
